VENUE: St. Francis College
ADDRESS: 180 Remsen St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
Join the 6th Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival for the roundtable discussion Women in Entertainment: Power Players Changing the Parity Game co-produced in partnership with NY Women in Film & Television!
Over the past year the conversation about women’s representation in front of and behind the camera has burst into the public consciousness. We are at a turning point where gender issues that have long been discussed within the industry itself have become a mainstream concern. Everything from pay equity for actresses and the struggles of female directors to the lack of women in gate keeping positions have become talking points in the popular media. But has anything really changed? Is a larger awareness of the problem leading to expanded opportunities and resources for women in the industry? Do women have more freedom from gendered career obstacles working outside the commercial film world or do they face similar issues working in indies?
Moderated by producer Roz Murphy, this round table discussion features a wide range of women filmmakers sharing their experiences, work strategies and perspectives about the way forward for women in film. Panelists include:
- Valerie Brooks and Gabriella A. Moses, filmmakers
- Meghan Scibona, a director, producer and writer
- Margot Lulick,producer and director
- Jan Eliasberg, a director, writer and producer
- Dana Verde, a writer, director and producer
Founded in 2011, the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (AoBFF) is the only independent, international festival to focus entirely on films and filmmakers that are Brooklyn-born, Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-centric. We are as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. And everyone is invited to our party.
Hosted by Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.
